Leviathan Red Wine 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Always a value, the 2019 California Red Wine is a juicy, up-front, undeniably delicious red with plenty of red, black, and blue fruits as well as graphite, leafy herbs, and chalky mineral nuances. Medium to full-bodied, pure, balanced, and seamless, it's a no-brainer purchase to enjoy over the coming 8-10 years at a minimum.
The 2019 Leviathan is a fabulous wine from Andy Erickson. Powerful and flamboyant, but somehow not overdone, the 2019 is packed with inky dark red fruit. Blood orange, spice and floral accents add just enough lift to keep things balanced. I very much like the energy here.
Rich in fruit and chocolate flavors, this wine is full-bodied and velvety in texture, due to moderate tannins. Vanilla, maple and blackberry-jam notes dominate the flavors.
Plush and soft-edged in style, with a gush of warmed cassis, fig and melted licorice notes that give way to a toasty finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Syrah. Drink now through 2023. 12,000 cases made.
